  • Blow !!

    Been crawling about like a dafty in the fields near home once again just to bring you a dandelion clock at sunset

    By my reckoning, it is now three years in a row that I have done this

    Hope you enjoy, I had great fun

    Only recently joined this group so this is the first one of these of yours that I've seen. It's a cracking shot and well worth the crawling around.

      That's a beauty Greg! It looks like it was worth crawling on the ground for this one.

        The grovelling was certainly well worth it Greg that's a great shot. Dandelions make great subjects and you grabbed this one very well. Excellent use of the sunset and did you use a bit of flash too?

              Really lovely shot in fact, great focus, lovely colours. (funny, had taken some myself with the 50mm, nowhere near as good)

              Best wishes and keep crawling.

                Nice one. Inventive idea too...

                  Very effective.
                  Did you creep up on it slowly incase it saw you?

                      Excellent shot Greg, into the sun with no blown highlights - very good technique I'd say.
